CannaTrade 2019 – Panel: Swiss cannabis politics – challenges and perspectives

Simon Anderfuhren-Biget is an independent researcher associated to the department of sociology (Geneva University). Doctor in political science, specialist in public organizations and employees behaviours, he shifted his attention towards cannabis policy reforms in 2014 with the opening of the first legal markets in the Americas. Since, he sets his research efforts to analyse cannabis policies, regulatory practices, reform discourses, and stakeholders’ networks in Switzerland and around the world. He has been engaged in different institutions on projects related to the topic: the pilot project for the Canton of Geneva, the development of an expertise hub at GREA (Groupement Romand d’Etudes des Addictions), the “2019 Cannabis Report” commissioned by the Federal Commission for Addiction Issues (EKSF) to advise the Swiss Federal Government. Simon speaks about the challenges and perspectives of Switzerland’s cannabis politics.
